In case you’ve been living under a rock, social media has no doubt informed you that the Venice Film Festival 2022 is under way – and there’s a lot going on, to say the least. But Don’t Worry Darling drama aside, there was plenty of beauty inspiration on offer on the red carpet, as stars flooded into the Italian city wearing their most dazzling attire for the world’s oldest film fete.
From kaleidoscope eyeshadow to neon-tipped crops, here are all the best beauty looks from this year’s Venice Film Festival.
The ever-talented Tessa Thompson gave us major drama, opting for a deep burgundy lip with a soft bronze smoky eye and a sculptural top knot.
Influencer Leonie Hanne’s technicolour eye makeup featured bold, shimmering shades of lilac, emerald, gold and hot pink that fanned across her lids.
Beauty icon Tilda Swinton tinted the tips of her signature platinum locks neon yellow, styling her choppy crop with lots of piece-y texture for a lived-in finish.
A radiant Julianne Moore opted for a more natural, subdued makeup look, with neutral eyeshadow, defined lashes, groomed arches and a soft pink lip.
Gemma Chan’s polished (yet entirely uncontrived) up-do, paired with a bronze-toned winged eye and mocha lip, is a masterclass in undone red carpet beauty.
Olivia Wilde gave her high-glamour bedazzled gown a relaxed twist by opting for long, loose waves and glistening silver eye makeup.
Taylor Russel opted for a simple yet refined beauty look consisting of slicked-down hair and ultra-light makeup. The look perfectly balances the drama of her statement gown, a customised version of Look 54 from the Balenciaga 51st Couture collection.
The world would be talking no matter what Florence Pugh wore to the Venice Film Festival this year, but her fresh, old Hollywood-inspired hair and makeup was arguably worthy of equal attention.
